Melania Trump is keeping a low profile at Mar-a-Lago and is concerned about the potential impact on her son Barron if her husband is indicted, according to a new report.
While Donald Trump has stuck to his usual routines, and some in his inner circle are excited by the prospect that an impeachment could buoy his base, “Melania is lying very low.” pages six reported on Thursday, citing a source.
‘She hasn’t been coming to the dinners and events at Mar-a-Lago. He acts like everything is normal but she hasn’t been social,” the person said.
He wants to be away from it. She wants to protect Barron’, who is now 17 years old, the person added.
Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, both former White House advisers, are also said to be keeping their distance, after indicating they would not participate in his 2024 presidential campaign.

Former President Donald Trump was seen golfing at his course in West Palm Beach on Thursday as he waits to see if a grand jury in New York will hand down an indictment.
Trump, meanwhile, has kept it business as usual, and on Thursday he was seen looking nonchalant as he played a round of golf at his course in West Palm Beach.
The former president’s most ardent supporters rallied around his cause after he announced he would be arrested this week, staging demonstrations outside his Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach.
However, Trump’s prediction that he would be arrested last Tuesday fell short, and the grand jury in Manhattan was sent home until at least next week before any vote on a landmark indictment against the former president.
The grand jury has been hearing allegations about money paid on Trump’s behalf during the 2016 presidential campaign to a porn star who says she had a sexual encounter with him years earlier. Trump denies the affair and any wrongdoing.
The pause in the New York grand jury room has sparked speculation among Trump and his supporters that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has suffered a setback in his case.
Trump claimed Thursday there was “total disorder” in his office and demanded that Bragg drop the case.
In a post on his Truth Social platform on Thursday night, he ominously warned of the “potential death and destruction in such a false accusation,” saying it would be “catastrophic for our country.”

Without naming Bragg, he called the prosecutor “a degenerate psychopath who truly (sic) hates America.”
But between statements and posts on Truth Social, he also shared an image of actor and supporter John Voight at the golf club’s driving range.
He could later be seen in the afternoon in his red MAGA cap and white club polo shirt sharing some tips with a pretty blonde in a short blue skirt.
Members Bob Curcio and James Tomasello made up the group. Trump also mingled with diners at the club’s steakhouse.
“Isn’t it terrible that DA Bragg refuses to do the right thing and ‘call it a day?'” he posted on his Truth Social platform later that day.
He would rather accuse an innocent man and create years of hatred, chaos and turmoil, than give him his well-deserved “freedom”.
‘The whole country sees what is happening, and they are not going to take it anymore.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (pictured Thursday arriving at his office) will not convene a grand jury in the secret money case against Trump.
They’ve had enough! There was no mistake made, no fault, no crime and, above all, NO CASE. They spied on my campaign, rigged the election, falsely accused, cheated and lied. They are HUMAN SCUM!’ Trump added.
Security remained tight outside the Manhattan grand jury location as well as Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property on Thursday.
Prosecutors did not explain why the panel did not meet on Wednesday or hear from Trump-related witnesses on Thursday.
The grand jury is an investigative panel, which means it hears about other cases than the Trump affair. The jury does not meet on Fridays.
